There's very little to set up apart from depositing coffee beans into the bean hopper (or pre-ground coffee); the grinder has an adjustment system that automatically adjusts the grind levels for you. After that, it's just pressing a button to get a cup. This makes it ideal for busy people who wants a quick quality cuppa.
Pro Comes with built-in grinder and can use pre-ground coffee
The Gaggia Brera comes with its own grinder on top for whole beans, along with a bypass doser for pre-ground coffee. The grinder has an automatic adjustment system that automatically adjusts the grind levels, and it only grinds the amount of beans required for a cup and leaves the rest of the beans in the hopper intact.
